Russell and Rotowire’s Dr. Andre Snellings will be joined by Ian Eagle of CBS Sports and the YES Network.  Ian has been providing play-by-play for CBS for the NCAA Tournament, as well as college basketball throughout the season.  What has he seen so far? Is this tournament Florida’s to lose? What does he think of the draft prospects of some of the top rated players?

Kobe Bryant? The Los Angeles Lakers? Phil Jackson to the New York Knicks? What are her thoughts on those entities? And how is she handling this Celtics season, and what are her feelings on the future outlook of the franchise? LHR will discuss all of this with Randy. There's more: Jay King of Mass Live will hop on to discuss how the team has been handling all these losses since the calendar flipped to the New Year.  They may be saying all the right things, but ...
